Malware Playground

Around 3 month ago, I was starting developing a sandbox tool for easy to analyst any of malware sample that can generate at least basic information from the sample. I just named it Malware Playground as its work to 'play' with almost all Windows programs within it. Sound funny like a kids playing with knife but wearing a shield. The program itself has been developed using Microsoft Visual Basic 6 and working with more than 20 other programs.

At this moment, this program includes all required features for doing malware analyst. Here it is some features:
+ Save report as text and HTML format.
+ Analysis can be started at your own choice such as you can dump process memory instead of analyst all of the function (Registry, Dump, Handle, String, Port, Files and Folders, AV alias and so on).
+ Work with Windows platform (on VMWare or VirPC).
+ Work together with Sandboxie.
+ Drag and drop and warn before start analyzing it.

Malware Playground is still in development and some advanced features still remains in progress. Here it is list of features that currently in development:
+ Network activities
+ Process activities
+ Smart suggestion and recommendation technologies.
+ Add more AV alias detection
+ Security Risk Level perimeter.
+ Provide an official website for useful information and services.
+ Integrates with web interfaces that allowed user uploading their malware sample.
+ Save all known threat object into database.
+ Mapping all origin location for the malware and visualize on global map.

While this useful tools is still in progress, I was unable to provide a fully compiled program to give a test but you can leave a comment and suggest for more features.
